Arriving in Hollyoaks many years ago, Jack Osborne has been a regular face behind the bar at The Dog In The Pond for as long as we can remember. Although he's had his own share of troubles along the way - serving time in prison for faking his own death, losing The Dog, suffering a heart attack (regular sort of stuff) - he is a dependable shoulder for all in the village.

Yep, he's basically the dad of Hollyoaks, 'cos if there's one person who is a father figure to the younguns of the 'Oaks, it's our Jack.

Ever welcoming to wife Frankie's children and the various Hollyoaks waifs and strays, he's taken on the role of being a (grand)father to Esther, Ruby, Tom, Charlie and little baby Oscar to name but a few.
